    Grindy? Yes, way too Grindy
    Ambushes? Way too many (I hope there is a cap for it next week like 5 at max somehow)
    Rewards are alright tho. Best part is there are no exploration rewards so I can just take whatever I need and not bother for the rest of the stuff with tricky fights (week 3 Canadian havok for instance - I don't have great counters to him)

    Grindy and boring but the rewards are fine imo

    I’d rather continue to finish my cavalier than do these maps 100%.

    So don't do them 100%. Why would you? Just pick and choose the rewards that are worth the effort.

    Personally I ignore every path with gold in, most basic catalysts below T5B...

    From my perspective as a player who is Cavalier, but far from "End-Game", the challenge is about right, and there are some useful 5*/6*/T5B/T2A shards.

    Even Sasquatch isn't too bad now I've got the hang of him. I'm using She-Hulk - can't imagine using a Cosmic champ! Still think they ought to drop him to around 40k PI, and boost the boss to be the same.

    Decent rewards and an extra event! Always good in my opinion.

    Besides that, no energy and just 4 fights.. (maybe 5 if you encounter Sasquatch).
    I like it and I am satisfied with the rewards

    If you cannot do the Epic (level 40) difficulty yet, you are not progessed far enough to get multiple 5 stars a month and still are at the 4 star level.
    The problem you are fasing has nothing to do with not progessing via good 5 stars. It is not having the skill to get there.
    The lanes of Epic in atleast the first 2 weeks are easier than 5.1 and week 3 is about equal as 5.2.
    And uncollected is decently achievable with only 4 stars.
    Expand you 4 star roster so you have a lot of counters. After you can focus on your 5 stars.
    Else you will always be waiting on overpower champs that make all content way to easy.

    And don’t love or hate it. I like the rewards.

    I'm enjoying the event, could probably have done with a couple less lanes, I was expecting it to be harder, but a full lane on cavalier difficulty would be decent at that level.

    I've been caught by sasquatch once when I wasn't prepared, I took the lane knowing if I ran into him I didn't have a counter (wanted to play about with a few options countering the path node) bumped into him.. so I restarted it with a suitable counter. Free energy so I don't need to debate restarting a lane multiple times if I don't like my counters. If I don't feel like fighting sasquatch, then I can restart and switch to completing another path which will generally reset him, so I can go back and finish that particular path.

    I'm actively looking for him though, he's a reasonably fun fight to corvus in my opinion 😂

    How are you dealing Sasquatch with Corvus? I can't take out him with a 5/65 Corvus running full suicide. I can take him easily with lots of other champ but corvus isn’t doing well for me there.
    I have an R3, I can use my 5/65 with suicides, but it takes 2 rounds of glaive charges

    I hate the Canadian difficulty. Cannot finish each map 100%.

    I also cannot stand anyone that says it’s too easy for them. So what? Not for me. And they had to congratulate Kabam for a job well done too. My goodness. :smiley:

    dont 100% them, you dont need to - its not designed for everyone to 100% every week from the moment you get cavalier. This is meant to be preparing you for Book 2 and 100% Act 6.. go into 6.3/4 and tell you prefer to 100% that in 1 month over this side event.

    i was actually surprised, I thought the 2% T5CC would be on the hardest paths, but it was actually one of the easier paths to counter

    Didnt say it was the easiest option, far from it - just that I've been doing it for fun. Same as running disstrack with no debuffs, or powershield without throwing specials. I'm using the content as a punching bag to practice on something different than RoL winter solider. He deserves a break like Kabams hamsters..

    Also good practice since undoubtedly I'll start running into them in AW soon enough.

    and people think cav difficulty will be well received LOL

    I personally don’t think so.
    of course they will be hated, anything that isn't autofight (see gwenpool event) is gonna get hated on
    And the rewards will never meet expectations. They should just stop putting content out and just give us rewards. They'll never win.

    If you're not cavalier you shouldn't even be doing them in my opinion. If getting cavalier is difficult for you doing this difficulty should be prohibitively difficult to do regularly as well
    To be clear, this is Road to Cavalier. It was intended to help people make the transition into Cavalier. It's not Cavalier only. I would agree that some people aren't there yet, but it's not just for Cavalier Players. It's not intended to be such.

    Guardian fight is complete **** and disappointed that they took nodes from previous weeks and just basically pasted on guardian map.

    Guardian already has the annoying armor up mechanic but the team thought it be way funny if they add breakthrough like seriously is any thought ever goes into this game at all???

    Terms of rewards were good. Terms of combined nodes complete horrible and if they will be next month side quest then i wont bother at all.

    I find it easy but got to use some different champs. Longshot loves resistor 9k incinerates just melts them in a couple seconds

    It does feel like about 33% too many paths. It's like grinding arena.
